Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

What to do with the BLENKO?

  I recently inherited 10 boxes of Blenko Glass.  I am not a collector.  Suggestions for how to display or sell.

My parents were / are also Blenko Glass fanatics, they are in the process of downsizing.  They decided to donate all duplicates and items that were not special to the Union Mission,  YWCA, and Goodwill .  I think a box or two also went to the Habitat Resale Store.
   Any good charity will happily accept your glass donation.  If you are donating special items ( include the print out re: value of each)  also any information you may have received from the person who gifted you the glass.
    Selling is another option.  You can sell for yourself on EBAY or contact a local ( to your area)
consignment shop.
    Blenko Glass is a highly recognized and highly valued glass.  You'll find buyers who want your items.
    You mentioned displaying.   I'm posting a few photos of Blenko used in the home.  I'm not a big fan of shelves of Blenko.  I prefer rotating decorative items.
